BEIRUT, April 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Syria have agreed to send humanitarian aid to the Armenian-populated town of Kessab on the Turkey-Syria border.

On March 22, Syria’s Kessab was attacked by gunmen who had crossed the border from Turkey.

“We have reached agreement with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad,” Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society chairman Sergei Stepashin has said.

A Syrian airplane will deliver the humanitarian aid within days, he said.
